Cavill took to Instagram to express his gratitude to the iconic character first created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster in 1933. He wrote, “A huuuuge thank you to the incredibly talented artists and writers over the years who have given us so much. Within us, Superman will now live no matter how old he gets. Happy Birthday my friend.”

Thanking the character, he wrote, “He’s certainly changed me, given me hope, allowed me space to push myself beyond the limits of my patience. Truly, what would a world be without Superman? He paved the way for all of our favourite heroes even if he’s not yours personally.”
